27 coloured lithographed plates on card (various sizes: from 538 x 364mm. to 247 x 446mm.), without title or text, [Abbey, Scenery 239; Tooley (1954) 104; Adams (London) 196], some marginal soiling, tears and creases, plate 11 trimmed to image with slight wear to edges, sold as a collection of loose plates not subject to return
This is the complete set of 26 plates, together with an additional lithograph by Boys of the Tower of London after the fire of October 1841, which is not usually found with the work. These prints are considered to be the finest lithographed views of London. Abbey describes the work as being "of considerable importance; apart from the beauty of its plates, it records London at a period when good pictorial records were few. The London of the 1840s is probably more difficult to reconstruct than that of any period in the nineteenth century."
